Non-Residential Reentry Centers

A Non-Residential Reentry Program for Community Corrections

GEO Reentry Services has operated non-residential reentry programs for federal, state, and local corrections for more than two decades, helping individuals change their behavior and successfully transition back into the community, while helping agencies across the country focus on reducing criminal risk and recidivism. Our structured and comprehensive programs promote successful reentry through a combination of treatment services, accountability and links to community resources.

The Challenge

Some individuals on probationers and parole are resistant to typical community supervision techniques; therefore, they chronically fail conditions of release at great cost to the community. Additionally, many individuals who are released from prison require a range of essential services to help them reintegrate back into society. In many cases, these individuals have belief systems, attitudes, and behaviors formed over decades that creates a cycle of repeat criminal behavior. And in many cases, these individuals lack a positive social network. All of this leads to high recidivism rates, causing great strain on the system and jeopardizing public safety.

Our Approach

GEO Reentry’s non-residential reentry centers and day reporting programs support correctional agencies in offering multi-phase, evidence-based treatment, accountability, links to valuable local resources, and aftercare. When reentrants are referred to us, they go through an orientation and assessment process for criminogenic risk. Their treatment needs are tailored to an individual behavior change plan.

Outcomes with Non-Residential Reentry Center Programs

In partnership with local probation and parole agencies, GEO Reentry delivers specialized treatment, training, and targeted services for individuals being supervised in the community. Our system of accountability, structure, and treatment fosters development of higher levels of reasoning; confrontation of personal beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors; assessment of relationships; facilitation of identity development; enhanced self-concept and self-esteem; and decision-making that can reduce criminal risk.
